Here is my design team card for some inspiration.
Now, you would be surprised at how many textures you use on a project and don't think about it. For me, I think of fabrics, ribbons, and things that are elevated off the paper. I selected an image I knew I could use many textures with.
My roly poly chef from Bugaboo definitely needed a chalkboard. I stamped the image onto manilla cardstock, cut it out, then cut out the "chalkboard" area inside the image. I replaced it with a scrap of paper that I thought was a perfect chalkboard look and then inked it with Hero Arts Old Letter Writing stamp in frost white Colorbox ink. I let it dry a bit and then smudged it a little to look like real chalk. Then I colored him with Copics. I finished the chef coat off with some Ranger black Glossy Enamel for black buttons - the first layer of texture.
My third layer was the corrugated cardboard with the twine and button. I assembled the card using "restaurant check" red and white paper for the bg and put that on top of black and kraft PTI cardstock.
I think he's adorable! Now don't forget to check out the cards from the other Design Team ladies. They are AMAZING!
